Using my Win7 x64 machine, I transfered all of my songs to an external drive and then changed the default location of the iTunes Media Folder. However, if I disconnect the drive and then open iTunes it reverts back to the default path (%user%/Music/iTunes/iTunes Media).

Is there any way to force iTunes to not change the folder location?

Thanks

Instead of linking directly to the iTunes folder on the external drive, I would try linking iTunes to an alias that points to the folder. That way even when the drive is not connected, the alias is still available for iTunes to use as a path.

Windows calls it a "shortcut". You could right click on the folder and choose "Create Shortcut", and then move the shortcut to the default iTunes library location.
